the knowledge: breathwork and botanicals for runners by Thai Richards

The Knowledge is our ongoing series for transforming thinking into doing. We ask experts to distill a lifetime of knowledge into short instructional videos that make it impossible for you to mess up or find an excuse. In other words, we've done most of the thinking for you, now all you need to do is do.

This week, we present an instructional video on breathwork and botanicals for runners by Thai Richards.

Thai Richards is a Brooklyn-born cannabis athlete and entrepreneur. He’s been working to redefine wellness by breaking stigmas and building community through his brand, Rage and Release. His 11-year modeling career and experience working across multiple industries brought him to art direct and curate these inclusive cultural, fitness, and wellness events. His West Indian and African roots are embedded into the fabric of the programming, bridging the gap between spirituality and fitness. In short, he’s a real one so listen up fam.
